    Please note: We would like mature, professional and confident volunteers who would be able

    to deal with corporate and VIP guests in an appropriate manner.

    You will be very busy on the day but everything needed to run the VIP areas will be waiting

    for you, you just need to turn up with lots of energy and enthusiasm!

    As a thank you, you will get;

    - Volunteer T-shirt to be worn on race day (on top of anything else you may be

    wearing) but yours to keep!

    - Volunteer Lanyard with key information

    - Food and drinks

    - Training and support

  • By volunteering you are joining a large community of volunteers called the Extra Milers

    who are Making the Difference to ensure runners and spectators alike have the best

    experience possible on race day!

    We really could not do this without you and appreciate all your time and
